Sorry, forgot to mention.  The Plus Net fee is £14.99 a month.  You do
not have to pay a connection fee with them either if you agree to stay
for 5 years.  Which is no problem because if you leave after a year or
two you pay only a percentage so you still win.

I am only human, please forgive me if I make a mistake it is not deliberate.
Take care.
